got a lot. i wouldn't want anything to happen for it. by the way i'm running for city council. that's what what's going on here. it has a chilling effect on workplace political discussion. imagine if you want to go out and campaign for obama or put an obama yard sign in your front yard and you know your boss is against obama. you're going to be careful about doing that, especially in this economy where folks can lose their jobs so easily and it is important to state that unless you're a member of a union it is legal to fire someone for their political beliefs. >> eliot: mike, i'm not so sure i agree with you. we'll take that up in a second. i understand your view. joe, you're out there in the political fray day to day. are you seeing many employers actually picking up and running with the suggestion of mitt romney to distribute their political views and if so, how are they doing it? >> what's happening is exactly what mike said. you get a lot of employers saying we can't tell you how to vote. we don't want to

city tribune endorsed president obama over governor romney. >> i wasn't surprised. the salt lake tribune has a history of being progressive. but i was really glad to see it happen as well. it is a good reminder from people in and outside of utah that those voices exist. >> john: it seems like your church really is evolving. i made everyone earlier to lgbt issues. a lot of my mormon friends talk quite a bit. i've seen postings about mormons for greater lgbt acceptance and equality. does this inspire you guys or are you more on the feminist side of your activism? >> you know, we recently did an issue on lgbt community who are also mormon, in our paper. and i think it really -- feminism and lgbt rights go hand in hand. these are groups of people that need to be protected and treated well. and i think as a feminist, i have really come around with doing that, putting together that issue to see how integral it is to make sure that we're protecting and giving rights to members of the lgbt community. >> john: it is a plea

it's a group that is very concerned about what is happening in our cities, and what is happening on the streets to american's youth. they're very concerned. >> eliot: it struck me when i was in government, when i would speak to people that the issue of gun violence and gun control broke down not so much along partisan d republican and democrat lines but urban roles where there is a pro live ration of guns where those in rural areas don't quite get it. >> i agree with that. when you look at polling with specific policies, having a background check. 87% of non-n ra members support that. in all areas of gun control support those measures. >> eliot: you have experienced this in a way that hopefully very few other people have or will. you went through horrifying incident. how quickly did you realize you wanted to spend the next year on this issue. >> it took me awhile to get involved, and come to mayors against illegal guns. i eventually realized if i didn't get involved personally, i couldn't get mad at the lack of discourse. i just had to actually be involved and try to effect chang

good the negotiating relationship between these individuals and nation-state cities have changed. rupert murdoch is void of national identity and his ability to control media and money makes aim a supremely powerful person regardless of where he is or geographically centered. >> exactly right. it's not just him. but there are many people like that. the owner of british newspapers, he's russian. this is really a global community. >> eliot: one of the other things you pointed out that is fascinating, the plutocr rats used to inherit wealth. today many of these super wealthy individuals have been creators. i hate to sound like mitt romney, the job creators, but they have created facebook google, some high-techent that has created some transformative technology. >> i agree with that. i agree with you eliot that is something that is progressives is uncomfortable admitting. these are an elite landed gentry they're fat cats smoking their cigars, they add no value. that's just not true. the second part of the fitzgerald quote that started our discussion, something along the lines the ric

indoors 54th street and down in manhattan has gone dark now. substantial flooding throughout new york city, including the brooklyn battery tunnel is now flooded, apparently. so this storm is very serious. that's why i was so angry earlier in the show about the fact that they have done nothing on climate change, unfortunately, for a long, long time. to end the show on a lighter note let's talk about republican hip treasehypocrisy. the king is joe dejarlais. he is pro-life and then we find out he has asked one of his mistresses to get an abortion--oops. and then another mistress came out. >> the pro-life supporter had an affair with a patient a decade ago. after learning she was pregnant urged her to get an abortion. >> and now? >> tennessee's oldest and largest conservative organization is mounting a campaign to force the regular he's nation of scott desjarlais. >> desjarlais is not only a hypocrite but a fraud. >> cenk: the thing that is unethical is he's picking up women while he's a doctor. that's a no-no--well that and the abortion thing. while he's the doctor he's seducing one of his p

you in the last segment, but not the democratic mayor of atlantic city. they had words about who's fault it was that people were still stuck in atlantic city. let's watch that. >> in atlantic city, we are for whatever reason mayor langford urged people to stay in shelters in the city, despite my admonition to evacuate, he gave them comfort for some reason to stay. so for those of you on the barrier islands who decided it was a better way to wait this out and for those elected officials who decided to ignore my admonition, this is now your responsibility. >> there's always going to be that certain few that despite your best efforts are going to do as they see fit anyway and then at the last minute, decide that they should have left. in life, it's better to have options and not need them than to need options and not have them. >> >> this is actually live, let's listen in for a few seconds. >> be responsive for their needs for food, water and cots. four federal disaster medical assistance teams are aiding our state staff shelters. two teams have arrived and two teams are on their wa

york city alone already. now, we go to the issue of how this disaster was handled. well, chris christie actually gave high praise to president obama on this issue. >> the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday. he called me for the last time at midnight last night asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major disaster declaration. he signed it for new jersey. the president has been all over this. he deserves great credit. he gave me his number at the white house, told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely means it. >> cenk: now that's the governor of new jersey who is busy today of course, running around new jersey trying to make sure everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportun
